Godsmack is releasing their seventh studio album, When Legends Rise, on April 27th, and just a few weeks later, the band is celebrating big by performing their new music during their iHeartRadio LIVE show on May 9th in New York City in front of an intimate group of fans.

It's been 20 years since the release of Godsmack's debut self-titled album, and WHEN LEGENDS RISE is the first full-length release since 2014's 1000hp. The record was recorded at the band's headquarters (GSHQ) in Derry, New Hampshire, and produced by Erik Ron and Sully. Erna has explained of the inspiration behind the album, "It was just about evolving as a songwriter. I wanted to stretch my wings out even further to use all the experiences I’ve had with writing different types of music over the years and applying that to find a way to introduce a newer, fresher, more mature sound, but still maintaining the power of Godsmack."

WHEN LEGENDS RISE, which includes 11 new songs in total, including their new single "Bulletproof," is set to be released on April 27th. Fans can catch the band out on the road at several U.S. festivals between April 27th and July 14th, and then later in the year during their upcoming major outdoor amphitheater tour.
